    MOST ARE GETTING SHOT BECAUSE OF THEIR CHOOSEN BEHAVIOR and the situation they put themselves in. Lifestyle they choice. AND, most are killing each other! They want to blame everyone else for their misfortune! They kill each over phones and sneakers! Give me a break!

    Before being any nationality or pledging alliance to any flag we are humans our main concern should be the well being of our fellow human beings we gotta free our minds from goverment control its unbelievable how we get manipulated into making enemies of our own specie just because they are a different race or color practice a different religion or goverment system

    The point you brainwashed pple missing is that the words of the anthem doesn't apply to all. And if it did and you still had injustices, you'd still have to stand up against the injustices. The right thing to do is rise up against all injustices. And that's what he is doing. Is only the racist pple won't see that.

    We stand with you against this dictatorship this is AMERICA not Russia or North Korea.. people need to stop their fake patriotism and get over it period the people who are crying are the same people who support a president who doesn't produce his own product in AMERICA but instead produce his products in China, Mexico, Indonesia.. A president who disrespected a war hero McCAIN.. A president who disrespects our law enforcement agencies every single day.. SO STOP WITH YOUR FAKE PATRIOTISM

    Yes! We need as many servicemen as we can get to attest to the fact that these men are not disrespecting the flag, but legally protesting racial inequality! What is so hard to understand?I suppose though that if you are white like me and do not worry every time your child is stopped by a cop that they will be shot just because they are black, it could be a stumbling block, But if you are a mother then I think it would be very easy to understand! For heaven's sake have some empathy!
